ABOUT THE MONTROSE COUNTY VACCINATION PROGRAM
Vaccination is the best form of protection against an infectious disease. A vaccine activates a person’s immune system by creating antibodies that will help the body fight the virus and prevent disease if later exposed to the virus.
Immunization with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the nation’s strategy to reduce COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths and to help restore societal functioning. The goal of the U.S. government is to have enough COVID-19 vaccine for all people in the United States who wish to be vaccinated. At this time, Montrose County Public Health is administering the Moderna vaccination (for questions, please see here). The State of Colorado receives a limited number of vaccines from the federal government, and then the state distributes to local public health agencies based on a variety of factors.
MONTROSE COUNTY IS IN THE VERY EARLY STAGES OF PHASE 1B
Currently, Montrose County is providing vaccines to first responders and healthcare personnel who are essential to keeping the healthcare system intact, including clinical personnel, 9-1-1 EMS, residents and staff at long-term care facilities, urgent/community clinics and school nurses. We are also providing vaccinations to those who fall above the line in Phase 1B in the State of Colorado Vaccination graphic (please see below). This includes: Health care workers with less direct contact with COVID-19 patients (e.g. home health, hospice, pharmacy, dental, etc.) and EMS, Firefighters, police, COVID-19 response personnel, correctional workers, and funeral services, and people age 70 and older.
